Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Fiesta Returns After COVID-19 Hiatus

Balloons filled the sky above New Mexico on October 3 for the second day of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.

The event was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the event website, 588 balloons were registered to participate in the fiesta, which will run until October 10.
